The Manuals are committed to making the best current medical information accessible by up to 3 billion health care professionals and patients on every continent by 2020.

We believe that health information is a universal right and that every person is entitled to accurate and accessible medical information. We have a responsibility to protect, preserve and share the best current medical information to enable more informed decisions, enhance relationships between patients and professionals, and improve health care outcomes around the world.
